The Tech Despoiler

http://www.TIB-X.com

We're just 15% away from funding The Infinite Black Expansion and are throwing in a huge gift for that final push!

All backers at 'The Flayer Tier' or higher ($80) will receive another powerful ship for free!



The Tech Despoiler is a kickstarter exclusive that will not be available anywhere else.

This is the only ship in the game with a natural Technician bonus, allowing it to remove Grapple or other harmful effects from friendly units. Despoiler Class is a "Large" ship that normally has no bonus, so your Tech Despoiler is unique!

Players can collect, trade, or sell these ships in The Expansion like equipment items. Additionally, the new Strike Group defense mechanics will accommodate your Tech Despoiler as the AI now takes advantage of Technician abilities.

“We haven't chosen any winners yet, but we have narrowed-down the best submissions for each map contest. Some people's maps are consistently good and follow what we're asking for, so nice job! Below is a list of names of people who have been chosen as finalists for Map Contests 1-8: glimmung x3 nyqx x3 Grizellus x2 Guss x2 heerend x2 Skade x2 Tulkus x2 Xariol x2 DarthOdin x2 KungLeon AAAC antm1 ChangMao x3 CydKnight dirtybags lhooman MarqLong x3 sigmasgirl sixty7pearls If you don't see your name on this list, you might want to check out some of the maps these people have done to help you get an idea of what we're looking for. Please be aware that we are now actively disqualifying maps that don't fit the criteria we have outlined for each contest. We had to disqualify 5 submissions in the last contest, and it was painful for us to do. Please make sure you abide by the x/175 sector cap!”
